Bottle. Cloudy orange with a small head. Spicy and fruity aroma, hints of chewing gum. Spicy bitter flavours countering sweet fruit, mostly orange. Smooth. Drinkable if somewhat disappointing.

Cask at The White Horse Belgain Beer Festival, 24th August 2008. I’m going to have to disagree pretty vehemently on this one. Cloudy orange amber with no head. Pretty fruity aroma but the alcohol is too evident and suffocates the more delicate flavours. I found this hard going and didn’t enjoy it at all.

A Mes rate: Bottle at the Tom’s awesome Twickenham Brewery tasting.
Hazy yellow coloured with a really good white head and conditioning. Lovely peach aroma with some creamy lemon hoppage. Slight pepper and yeast. You know the style but it is done well here. The flavour is absolutely excellent. I really wasn’t expecting this. Beautiful creamy lemon hops with a slight funky sourness, stunning fruit and marzipan notes and a dry bitter finish with a slight kick of yeast. Adorable stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty hazy, straw-coloured beer with a small, creamy white head. Bit gassy upon pouring, later some dull-grainy, but also yeasty, phenolic. More phenols in the taste, and meaty esters. Very remarkable, and original, if not truly long-lasting taste. Seems to get some, if discreet, fatty acids. Medium bodied, very slick, a little astringency. Another beer that is better than the sum of its parts. Despite the low marks, I would urge people to try if they find it. Actually a tweaking of Alvinne Blond, that won’t be made any longer.

Hazy blond beer. Mild sweet fruity flavor. Very sticky mouthfeel. Starts with some maltiness and ending in a more yeasty aftertaste.
